We kicked the feature off by looking at the CPC version of The Magnificent Seven
With lots of Crash quotes? Erm. Still, it'll be interesting to see how this one evolves—it's a good idea for a quick 'n' easy DPS.[/quote]

Urm, yeah, good spot mate. :roll:

Craig, we did actually consider setting it out that way initially, but due to space - we're looking at between 4-8 games, now with screenshots, over two pages - we felt it would make more sense to centre the reviews on a single format. We were also worried that by comparing the ports the emphasis wo...

I'm no movie expert, but I'm sure ET shifted more than a million copies - on VHS sales alone :wink:

Box of Delights rethink

Guys, I figured this relevant for the thread. After listening to the feeback last issue, we've decided to alter the format of the Box of Delights feature slightly. The game reviews will now rotate between the CPC, C64 and Speccy. We kicked the feature off by looking at the CPC version of The Magnifi...

Well it was written in only five weeks instead of the normal six months causing much hair-pulling and frustration for the poor programmer. Atari's fault in setting such a ridiculous deadline for Howard. There are far worse games on the VCS. Take this for example, another film license. http://www.wa...

The CPC version was no slouch in bed - metaphorically speaking of course.

Should have used a green jelly baby though, so he was camouflaged against the background That Jelly Baby looked delicious! (I suspect now ex-Jelly Baby if Darran or Stu had anything to do with it..) :D When Darran contacted Green Beret to ask him for a recent pic, he sent in one of himself nekkid s...

That's a fair point Dudley. I'll certainly give it a bit more thought next time.

It's Dark Castle next (the MegaDrive version). No one has any problems with us rippin' on that surely? :D

Olifiers, No worries. The feature is new, it was introduced last issue with a short explanation, so if you missed it then this E.T piece would have certainly seemed peculiar. We're testing out a few new light feature ideas to break up the mag a little and the Retro Shamer article is one example. If ...

Hey Olifers, Sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy the ET piece this issue. Just to explain, the Retro Shamer articles are merely a bit of fun-poking. They're not intended to be fact-driven or go into a game's history. If we did touch on the game's back-story - given that the main body text is only ...

I agree with Darran on this one - and it's not because we wrote the feature. We did ponder over Smash TV when compiling the list, but we argued that there's no better genre it could comfortably slot into. Personally, if you take out Smash TV and Robotron, you would also have to discount games like M...

Despite never really being a fan of the game, the Green Beret Conversion Caper was excellent, a really good read. I almost felt like a jerk for ripping into the home conversions so much (if that's any kind of indication of how your words and their meanings affected me Merman :)). Haven't read Mike o...

Shenmue Xmas

Hey guys, Hoping you can help me with this Christmas article that I'm writing? I want to touch on my favourite Xmas moment, which is the Christmas day that occurs in Shenmue. If memory serves, not a great deal actually happens on the actual day. I always remember it being a break from the fighting, ...
